Swarovski Optik produces this traditionally build Habicht binoculars for 45 years. The new generation of Habicht models provides classic aesthetic design with modern optic implementations, using the best materials and advanced technology. You can choose between two Habicht armoring type, depending on what your primary observations are. Habicht offers three models with 7x42, 8x30 and 10x40 parameters in black leather and 7x42 and 10x40 with green rubber armor. Black leather texture combined with a metal is less durable but this traditional design is definitely perfect for any enthusiast that loves to observe the great outdoors. If you tend to use these binoculars for generations in difficult terrain and extreme weather conditions but still want the same high-quality optical performance, you can choose Habicht with green rubber armoring (“GA”). This extremely durable setting provides protection against corrosion, impacts, abrasions and significantly reduces noise. These binoculars are also watertight, which is very rare among the Porros. They are filled with Nitrogen gas, making them waterproof and fog-proof. Internal condensation due to temperature fluctuations will never be an issue and they are also submersible to a water depth of 3 meters. One of the most lightweight Porros on the market are also convenient for observations for extended periods of time.
Porro-prism Habicht series provides incredibly bright images due to Porro types of prisms. This very wide building type draws in plenty of light even into the compact-size objective lenses. Without any major loss, Habicht provides up to 96% of gathering ability with the help of multi-coatings on all lenses and prisms (Swarotop). Excellent light transmission offers incredible performance even in the dim light situations. The images are also razor-sharp and colors extremely vibrant providing very natural feel. They also offer stunning 3D images you’ll definitely never find in any roof prism binoculars and very good close focus, very convenient for macro observations. Habicht has a stiff central focus knob and loose right-eye diopter and should be tried on before purchasing them, since they are lacking a mechanism of twistable eyecups for setting a proper eye-relief.
Swarovski Habicht includes accessories such as rain-guards, plastic pouch and neck strap.
